A Kansas State Reading Circle Selection

If you enjoyed In the Land of the Lawn Weenies, here are thirty-five more stories to make you laugh, scream, and shudder. Find out why joggers never smile, learn what happens when you mess with a mummy, and meet some frighteningly intelligent insects. (Parental advisory—some of these stories are very scary. Then again, so are some parents.)

"Another winning roundup, of particular interest to reluctant readers."—Booklist

"Not for the sensitive or easily frightened, this book is perfect to hand to youngsters who want something to read after they've finished all of Alvin Schwartz's Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark titles."—School Library Journal

"These yarns are sure to produce gasps and giggles."—Publishers Weekly

"A follow-up to his In the Land of the Lawn Weenies and Other Warped and Creepy Tales, this batch of pleasingly short, well-crafted pieces once again mixes the comic and the creepy, the merely weird with the truly haunting. Some, like the title story, have a 'Twilight Zone'-ish inconclusiveness, while others, such as 'The Shortcut,' have that classic zombie-grabs-you-by-the-leg impact."—San Francisco Chronicle
